Yesterday was the first day back to school for my boys and work for my husband. I've never seen such long sad faces! I must admit that it was wonderful to sleep in everyday. When the alarm went off at 6am it was pretty darn brutal. I peeked out the window and squeezed my eyes shut. It was foggy and the ground was still covered in left over snow that refused to go away. I wanted nothing more than to be transported back into summer.
The idea to have a summer picnic type meal sprang to mind. I had a chicken waiting to be made into something and Myrecipes.com supplied me with a new chicken recipe to try. They don't sell rotisserie chicken here so I made my own but to be honest you can season your chicken any wich way you like and it will be fine. The chicken tasted fantastic and next time I will bump the bbq sauce up by another tablespoon but thats just personal taste preference. I served this with macaroni salad and it has us all anxious for summer to get here!
